About the artist:

Arianna is an abstract mixed media artist eager to explore the many and varied opportunities for creative expression. Focusing on a combination of abstract backdrops and geometric line work, her style is a visual exploration of the dualistic and converging elements of logic and emotion, chaos and control.

This collection of 5 pieces combines Polaroid emulsion lifts with cut and paste poetry to create visual poetry compositions. I used a Polaroid CloseUp Instant camera to capture images of friends, strangers, and found objects, and then used an emulsion lift technique to transfer and distress the images on watercolor paper. I then used old books and magazines to cut out words and phrases, and then reassembled them into my own short compositions as a written expression of the sentiment of each image.
